Whitney Houston Kicks Off Comeback

Whitney Houston

A radiant Whitney Houston previewed her first studio album in seven years, I Look to You, for VIPs, media, and fans at a private listening event at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London on Tuesday. Clive Davis was on hand to play songs from the set, due Sept. 1.

“You won’t forget it after you hear it,” the music mogul told ABC News. “There is a song on this album which is called ‘I Didn’t Know My Own Strength’ and it really speaks for Whitney. She tumbled but she didn’t crumble.”

    Wow!!! What a classy lady! I’m glad she didn’t go Mariah’s route – Mariah’s new video is HORRENDOUS by the way. Whitney is one classy lady and that cover picture actually reminds me of her debut album in 1985.

    This has nothing to do with Mariah. Keep her out of this,Whitney only looks classy as you say because Clive invested time and money to clean her up.


  3. carl

    OMG. She looks goooooood!


  4. Warren

    She looks beautiful and sexy. I am glad she was able to put the past behind her. I am a big fan and can’t wait to her new album comes out. She is a child of God who has touched her.

    oh please, whitney was always a classy lady from back in the day.. she fell off because of bobby but i am glad clive managed to get her back to the classy whitney we once knew.. welcome back mrs whitney and you are looking amazing..i like clive too…both are great in my book..!!!

    Whitney’s only real rival for her new album will be Madonna (There will likely be some Queen of Pop catfights coming!). Mariah’s release screams FLOP to me. Her Iconography compilation comes out 3 weeks after I Look To You, and since a previous compilation by Madonna (The Immaculate Collection) was her biggest selling album to date, there’s definately potential by her fanbase. Madonna still has that HUGE generation X crowd of hers and has been a chart/sales rival of Whitney since 1985. Whitney really is cross-generational: Baby Boomers will like Whitney’s ballads, the teenagers/early 20s people will like the Swizz Beats/will.i.am/Akon tracks, with the main 25-45 crowd liking most stuff. Whitney is the female version of Michael Jackson.

    Compared to all of the hip-hop/rap stuff out there, Whitney looks like the Hope Diamond/Pyramid of Giza.

    why are y’all putting these people against whitney like a dogfight? Everybody has their own lane. I love mariah and whitney for being THEM. I can’t help but admire how whitney has always been poised.

    Ditto to Gee Man! The post had nothing to do with Maria so why keep knockin’ something/someone who is doing big things?

    I’m glad to see Whitney doing/looking well. I’m not particulary fond and don’t see the hype of the song Clive is raving about (already leaked and posted by Rap-up previously). That said, I do look forward to what else the album has in store.


  12. ron.e

    LOL @ Michael: “Whitney is the female version of Michael Jackson.”

    Boyyy, you need to get off that crack quick!!!


  13. Trey

    Whitney’s comeback is just a testiment to parents who’ve had our backs, and tried to guide/avise us, saw trouble coming, but we didn’t/wouldn’t listen, yet wished we had of. Shout out to all those individuals who truly supported Whitney. Prayer to all of us who hate on others and ourselves. Don’t give up on God, or yourself, and keep it positive, for whatever we go through will pass. Holla!


  21. René
